INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS OTHER THAN TREATIES [56 STAT. Monopolies. Public-works con- tracts, etc. ARTICLE V 1. In the event that the Gov- ernment of the United States of America or the Government of the Argentine Republic establishes or maintains a monopoly for the importation, production or sale of a particular article or grants exclusive privileges, formally or in effect, to one or more agencies to import, produce or sell a par- ticular article, the commerce of the other country shall receive fair and equitable treatment in respect of the foreign purchases of such monopoly or agency. To this end such monopoly or agency will, in making its foreign pur- chases of any article, be influenced solely by considerations, such as those of price, quality, market- ability and terms of sale, which would ordinarily be taken into account by a private commercial enterprise interested solely in pur- chasing on the most favorable terms. 2. The Government of each country, in the awarding of con- tracts for public works and gener- ally in the purchase of supplies, shall accord fair and equitable treatment to the commerce of the other country as compared with the treatment accorded to the commerce of other foreign coun- tries. ARTICLE VI 1. Laws, regulations of admin- istrative authorities and decisions of administrative or judicial au- thorities of the United States of America or the Argentine Repub- lic, respectively, pertaining to the classification of articles for cus- toms purposes or to rates of duty shall be published promptly in ARTICULO V 1. En el caso de que el Gobier- no de los Estados Unidos de America o el Gobierno de la Repdblica Argentina establezca o mantenga un monopolio de importaci6n, producci6n o venta de un articulo determinado, u otorgue privilegios exclusivos, oficialmente o de hecho, a uno o mhs organismos, para importar, producir o vender un articulo determinado, el comercio del otro pais recibira un tratamiento justo y equitativo con respecto a las compras en el extranjero de dicho monopolio u organismo. A ese efecto, dicho monopolio u orga- nismo, al efectuar sus compras de cualquier articulo en el extranjero, se guiara inicamente por consi- deraciones tales como las de precio, calidad, posibilidades de compra- venta y condiciones de venta que habitualmente tomaria en cuenta una empresa comercial privada interesada solamente en comprar en las condiciones mas favorables. 2. El Gobierno de cada pais, al adjudicar contratos para obras publicas y generalmente en la ad- quisici6n de materiales, concederA un tratamiento justo y equitativo al comercio del otro pals en com- paraci6n con el tratamiento con- cedido al comercio de otros paises extranjeros. ARTICULO VI 1. Las leyes, reglamentaciones de autoridades administrativas y decisiones de autoridades adminis- trativas o judiciales de los Estados Unidos de America o de la Repu- blica Argentina, respectivamente, relativas a la clasificaci6n de arti- culos para fines aduaneros o a aranceles, seran publicadas sin Laws, regulations, and decisions.
